It’s all too easy to be swept off your feet. Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G might just be the coolest concerto going around: jazzy, suave and neat, a product of the Roaring Twenties. And who better to glide through the dreamy waltz of its Adagio than Louis Lortie?

The dance begins when Finnish-Ukranian conductor Dalia Stasevska gives her downbeat and John Adams’ “foxtrot for orchestra” shuffles in with its mesmerising mix of urbane rhythms and nostalgic Hollywood strings. The evening culminates in the Symphonic Dances of Rachmaninov, with the composer’s trademark melodic gifts enriched by the impulse for physical movement. The vigorous steps of its finale, a dance of life and death, will leave us all breathless.

Your concert ticket includes entry to The Mingling Room, a free one hour talk held in the Meeting Hall, located just behind Adelaide Town Hall.
